BYU is looking into allegations that former players received improper benefits.
"We are aware of the allegations and have been conducting a thorough review of the matter," BYU spokesman Duff Tittle said. Former Cougars WR Cody Hoffman was contacted by the school "a couple of months ago," according to one of his managers. The manager, Sam Leaf, said he was confident Hoffman didn't receive illegal benefits. BYU is the only school that has won a national championship and never had a major NCAA violation or been sanctioned. Thu, May 22, 2014 10:39:00 PM

Redskins signed BYU WR Cody Hoffman.

Hoffman (6-foot-3 7/8, 223) was a four-year starter for the Cougars, finishing his career as BYU's all-time leader in receptions (260), yards (3,612) and receiving scores (33). He also returned a kickoff for a touchdown as a sophomore. Hoffman is a plus-sized wideout with long arms (33 1/4"), but managed a 4.65 forty at the Combine with a 27 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot broad jump. A sub-par athlete, Hoffman will be limited to possession routes in the pros, and must become a better blocker.
Sun, May 11, 2014 02:54:00 PM's Bucky Brooks wrote that BYU WR Cody Hoffman "was a mild disappointment" at Senior Bowl practices on Monday.

"He didn't show elite quickness or burst in routes, and failed to separate from defenders in tight coverage," Brooks wrote. "Although big-bodied receivers can succeed in the NFL without exceptional speed, they must be able to create space with their size and strength. Hoffman didn't show that ability on the first day of practice, so it's important for him to find a way to get open over the next few days to convince evaluators that he has the potential to be a possible difference maker at the next level." We heard first-round buzz surrounding the Cougars receiver last summer after he caught 100 passes for 1,248 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2012, but Hoffman's lack of athleticism was exposed in 2013. A likely third-day pick, he's going to need to put in a lot of work to be a starter someday in the NFL.

BYU WR Cody Hoffman has accepted an invitation to participate in the 2014 Senior Bowl.

Hoffman received his invite a few weeks back and has decided to attend. The senior receiver class isn't terribly deep -- which will work toward Hoffman's advantage in this setting -- but we currently think that the lanky receiver's name won't be called until the third day. We heard first-round buzz surrounding the Cougar receiver this summer after he caught 100 passes for 1,248 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, but Hoffman's lack of athleticism has been exposed. He's going to need a lot of work to be a starter in the NFL.

BYU WR Cody Hoffman has received an invitation to participate in the 2014 Senior Bowl.

The senior receiver class isn't the deepest position this year, and Hoffman will likely land in the third day range. He came into the season with some top-50 buzz, but we think Hoffman lacks the talent to earn a top three-round selection.

BYU senior WR Cody Hoffman caught four passes for 57 yards and a touchdown in the school's 37-20 win over Boise State.

Hoffman received a lot of praise this offseason, with some ranking him among the top senior receivers in the country. We never felt comfortable with that kind of evaluation, and expect Hoffman to be a third day selection.

BYU senior WR Cody Hoffman will play against Utah State after being suspended for last week's contest against Middle Tennessee State.

Hoffman noted this is the healthiest he has been since tweaking his hamstring. Taysom Hill's game, which is focused don the ground, means Hoffman has posted sub-par production this season. Some really like him as a prospect, but we think he is an adequate prospect.

BYU senior WR Cody Hoffman has been suspended for Friday night's game against Middle Tennessee State for a violation of team rules.

After catching 100 passes for 1,248 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, Hoffman only has 10 grabs for 171 yards in 2013. Some of that can be contributed to poor quarterback play, but Hoffman also missed the season opener. We saw some first-round buzz for the Cougar receiver this summer, but we consider him an above average talent.

BYU senior WR Cody Hoffman is a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Virginia.

Hoffman, and running back Mike Hague, both have hamstring issues. Hoffman is a smooth receiver who lacks explosiveness, but has the attention of NFL evaluators and the national media.

BYU senior WR Cody Hoffman ranks as's Gil Brandt's No. 3 senior wide receiver.

Hoffman has great size at 6-for-3, 216 pounds, and Brandt likes his precise routes and soft hands. Speed, however, is a big concern for the plodder with a 4.58-second 40-yard dash. Brandt believes Hoffman will improve upon his 100-catch, 1,248 receiving yard junior season with Taysom Hill starting at quarterback.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl was "underwhelmed overall" by BYU senior WR Cody Hoffman.

Weidl did like Hoffman's ball skills but called him a one speed runner with limited separation ability. In fact, Weidl believes Hoffman is a "later day three" prospect. We appreciate the unique evaluation, since some are hyping Hoffman up as a possible first-round prospect.

BYU junior WR Cody Hoffman announced that he will return for his senior season.

This isn't much of a surprise, but Cougars outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy's decision should be coming next. We doubt Hoffman's numbers would have shocked anyone since he wins with smooth routes and body control. But, at the same time, we doubt he shows much more than he already has during the 2013 season.

BYU junior WR Cody Hoffman caught 10 passes for 114 yards against San Diego State Thursday night.

Hoffman, a junior prospect considering a jump to the NFL, showed off his smooth style downfield to create separation against the Aztecs. He won't flash in workouts, but Hoffman is long and utilizes solid routes with good body control to make an impact in the passing game.

BYU junior WR Cody Hoffman is "seriously entertaining thoughts of leaving for the NFL," according to SI's Tony Pauline.

Hoffman is a consistent target that creates separation with technique in his routes. We doubt he will flash in workouts, but Hoffman could be a late second day, early third day selection if he indeed does leave BYU after his redshirt junior season.

BYU junior WR Cody Hoffman will be ready to play in the Cougars' game against Weber State Saturday.

Hoffman hobbled off the field with an apparent quad contusion during Thursday's game against Washington State, but has been practicing ever since. "He will be great by Saturday. ...It hurts mostly when he kind of slows down right now. But I think he will be fine by Saturday," head coach Bronco Mendenhall said. The junior made three catches for 46 yards in the opener.
